Hey Guys,

I’ve been wanting to post for a while now, but inspiration has been majorly lacking. So, I thought I’d just catch you up on what’s going on. Classes have been going full steam ahead lately and I’m definitely going into “power through”/ “tunnel vision” mode to get through the semester. In a way, it’s kinda nice to have something to focus on and challenge myself again. I got too complacent during my unemployment phase, and now I’m really beginning to thrive in an academic environment again. But, that’s not to say academia doesn’t come with it’s challenges, and that brings me to my new best friend: coffee.

  • I’ve always been a bit of a coffee sissy. I’m the type that loved the smell, but could never really stomach it. I would always reach for the “frou frou” drinks as my dad calls them, kind of coffee drinks but mostly milk and cream. I finally found a blend that works for me, the Blonde roast. I still need it with milk and splenda, but it does the trick to keep me awake and ready for my early class.

  • Pretty Little Liars: Ok, bear with me on this one. I am slightly embarrassed that I like this show so much. But, you’re just gonna have to trust me on this one. It’s a mix between a soap opera and murder mystery, and it’s well acted with great writing (and for the most part that’s hard to come by in TV lately). It definitely fits the “guilty pleasure” category, but it’s fun and keeps you guessing.

  • Ed Sheeran: I stumbled onto his music by accident this week. A song of his caught my attention on the radio and I was instantly hooked. I would categorize it for the most part as a alternative, but he has a wonderful smooth voice that I could listen to all day.

Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend :)

Gettin’ It Together

27 Sep

Hello lovlies,

I just wanted to have a quick note here. Quite frankly, the universe has sent some interesting obstacles in my way the last couple weeks. (This pic will explain a lot). Bummer, right?

 

But all is well now and I feel even stronger than before. My last post was the push I needed to get me over the last little slump. I needed to get it together, and I truly believe I have. Working on my projects, taking care of myself and feeling really great about it. And to top is all off, it’s even close to the weekend. And everybody loves a Friday! Especially Corgis :)

 

“Did someone say Friday?!”

Happy Thursday!

I made it! I’ve hit the 3 week mark and I’m finally starting to feel at ease. During my latest transition, I’ve had a bit of trouble. For some reason I’ve been hit with homesickness mighty hard and just couldn’t shake it. Some days I would be feelin’ good, making progress and then, bam! Not feelin’ so great.

Honestly, I’m kinda embarrassed by this. I pride myself on being able to move about, adjust as necessary and blend. So, while I’m moping about, wanting to go home, I’m also super mad at myself for feeling that way. Crazy, right? Yup. Definitely.

But this week, I’ve think I’ve turned a corner. No surprise that when I finally eased up on myself, the homesickness eased up as well. And I’m finally on my way :)

And this quote has helped immensely: 

Happy Sunday!

Adventure

9 Aug

Hi all!

It’s been a crazy whirl wind lately. I just got back from a trip to Quebec and Montreal. We went for a wedding, but it was really great to be able to check out new cities and get a feel for the area. Both of which are great. They have nice restaurants and cool shopping, but we found we just liked hanging out and seeing where we ended up, which served us well. We had so much fun. So, I thought I’d share some pictures.

I also head out for Indiana this week. So nervous and excited. I can’t really tell which side is winning. lol. But it’ll be a new adventure!

Happy Thursday!

Lately

My life lately :)

{First set}

1) My lovely new bookmark courtesy of the awesome miss Anna. I was rereading Catching Fire, because I heard they’re starting to cast characters and I wanted to indulge my imagination before it gets mixed in with the movie versions, ya know? Either way, I’m excited :)

2) My sweet girl, Bridget.

3) UP earrings! I love them.

{Second set}

1) My first strawberry! It was a little sour, but I was so surprised it was actually growing.

2) Our awesome cat, Mischief.

3) Sunflowers are the best.

Happy Friday!
